Steve's Live Music Coupons and Deals
Scout Notes: Unless you're into some of the, er, noteworthy acts coming to the bigger venues in town, finding a good spot to catch some live music north of the perimeter can be a hit-or-miss kind of game. Which is why Steve, music lover and champion of folk music, decided to give Sandy Springs a laid-back place to have a beer and soak up the sounds of emerging singer-songwriters. Recognizing the neighborhood's need for a venue hosting original singer-songwriters, he opened up Steve's Live Music earlier this year, complete with state-of-the-art sound system and top-notch acoustics. It came about by way of Steve's own love of preserving folk music from all around the world, and they have already hosted artists from a host of genres and cultures, from blues to bluegrass to Russian, in addition to the singer-songwriters that take the stage on the weekends. (Perhaps you might even catch a future Grammy winner up there.) And while listening to the next Neil Young onstage, you can partake in the tapas menu (all veggies and fish) and a libation or two from the full bar. But beyond the food and drink, Steve's doesn't try to be anything but, in Steve's words, "an intimate listening room," free of distractions like pool or football on flat-screens—just the bar, the audience and the music. Because really, if that's the next Leonard Cohen strumming away up there, what more do you need? Hours: Monday - Saturday, 6:30 p.m. - 11 p.m.
With over-produced recording artists barely audible over oppressive beats, it's easy to forget where music came from.
